This morning I finished Vogue 8767, a 30s reproduction pattern, and I wanted to share the result with you! I was really in need of a new spring dress, and I think this dress is perfect. I love the jabot, belt and puffed sleeves! The construction of this dress went so smoothly, I even got [...]

I had this pattern in my stash for a while, but didn’t think of using it until the Sew For Victory Sewalong. This pattern was used by a couple of sewalongers and it inspired me of making my own version! I’m not really a trousers girl. Most often I wear skirts or dresses. I own [...]

It took me some time (due to some health issues), but it’s done! I finished my outfit in time for the Sew for Victory Sewalong! This also means I finished the first 2 patterns of my Lutterloh 1941 project! I drafted both patterns myself. This was my first blouse pattern and third dress I ever drafted. [...]

A while ago I wrote about the blouses I wanted to make using one basic pattern. This is the 4th blouse I made out of it. Because I don’t have any skirts to match the blouse I decided to sew a skirt as well. I changed quite a lot about the basic blouse pattern. I [...]

Today I finished my 70s Boudoir Dress. I decided to name the dress after the fabric which it’s made of.  I was really glad with how the dress turned out and was eager to take pictures of it. When I finished the dress this morning I tried it on and then the worst thing happened (well [...]

A while ago I bought a Lutterloh pattern book dating back to 1941. The book contains miniature patterns which you have resize to your own size using a special ruler with a scale. Because I’m new to this system I decided to start with something ‘easy’.  I choose a plaided skirt.   When I finshed [...]
